Paddle into the beautiful Hvalfjörður fjord on a stand up paddleboard and experience 360 degrees of breathtaking scenery. Those who wish to discover the untouched Icelandic nature while literally standing on water, surrounded by stretches of mountains, should not miss this tour.
Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is a sport that originated in Hawaii as a by-product of surfing. It has now made its way from that little volcanic island to this one. By using a paddle, you will propel yourself through the water while maintaining an upright stance. SUP is both a safe and fun activity which will provide you with an opportunity to see the Icelandic nature from a different viewpoint.
On this tour, you will be picked up in the morning and driven to one of the longest fjords in Iceland, Hvalfjörður, famous for its war and whaling history. This tranquil fjord makes for an excellent SUP location as it is exceptionally quiet and peaceful. All that along with the raw, alien Icelandic nature, takes this stand up paddle boarding experience to another level.
Depending on your preference, you will be suited with either a drysuit or a wetsuit. Your professional guides will then teach you everything you need to know about stand up paddleboards. Don't worry if you have no experience; this tour will be tailored to your background and level of fitness.
After gearing up and learning how to use the equipment, there is nothing left but to make your way out to the water and breathe in the fresh mountain air as you paddle out onto the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy the serene atmosphere as you stand on your board, surrounded by nothing but the pristine Icelandic nature.
